iPod pyramid scam warning

In “This Is London”, Mark Prigg, Evening Standard Technology Correspondent writes: “The Government today issued a warning over internet “pyramid” selling scams as sites such as eBay are being targeted by con artists.

But the offers are usually a scam with extremely small print, which reveals that the buyer will not get an iPod but simply a link to a website where they must pay to join a waiting list.

The buyer will only get an iPod when they reach the top of the list – and they will only move up it by getting other people to join – a scam similar to the pyramid selling schemes popular in the Eighties.

But the chances of getting to the top of the list are very remote – and in some cases non-existent because many of the websites are fakes.”
